Urban Fantasy Book Deal
« on: November 06, 2013, 02:08:42 PM »
Hi Everyone - Since 2008, I've been QT lurker (I've posted occassionally--particularly when I signed with my agent Suzie Townsend). 2012 and 2013 have been tough for me. I've gone through a divorce and psychological strains, so my presence here on the QT forum has been non-existant. Sorry.

Nothing like a book deal to lift me out of the dregs of depression. And I'm here to share that after 2 rounds of submission and over a year-and-a-half since signing with my agent, I can anounce that I am gonna be published.

Here is the post: http://abigailbakerbooks.com/2013/11/06/shazam-book-deal/

I hope to be around here much more now that I have been wrenched back into the writing/publihshing world (believe me, I tried curling up and hiding away forever... now I have no choice but to keep going).

Best wishes.

xo,
Abby

The line is originally from a much older poem by Arthur O'Shaugnhnessy which is really good. Here is the link if you're interested. http://www.bartleby.com/103/6.html
